In this thread I will endeavor to post pics of the Legions equipment throughout history. Now I am no artist so every pic you see here will have come from the net, but they fit how I see the equipment. :bs




Cheers, Þórgrímr

First up is the Imperial Era before fulminata weaponry became widespread in the Legios.

Legionarii with the Legio XII Fulminata stationed in Syria before the First Parthian War.




NOTE: As I come across pictures that fit the theme I will post them to their proper eras.

Next up is the Industrial Era circa 200 years after Imperator Aratus.


Image
Here is a pic of a Legionarii assigned to the Legio XXX Ulpia Victrix on the frontlines with the Inca in one of the uncountable skirmishes with that empire.

Image
Here is a pic of the Tribunus of the III Cohors - Legio XXX Ulpia Victrix. This picture is of a small interest to religious historians. It seems this officer belonged to the cult of the carpenter, a small sect of the Iudean religion.

Next up is the Era of the Arachnid War.



Image
This is a pic of the Roman Triarius Mark III Powered Armor. it was this armor that finally allowed the Romans to actually enter the Arachnid hives and dig them out so they would not have to glass every single planet occupied by the Bugs.
